Disney Backpacks have become almost universal for school kids and are extremely popular as a means of carrying items to and from school and back home again. As parents we need to make sure our kids are wearing them properly. Make sure their packs are not overly heavy, so be sure to see how heavy their pack is from time and check it when it's loaded with books and supplies.
Make sure your backpack comes with several compartments for pencils, and assorted small items so they can be easily found and replaced as they are used. These compartments not only help your child stay organized but they also pad the sharpness of these items in the backpack.
By selecting a light weight backpack that fits properly, has padding in the back, has two wide padded shoulder straps, with compartments, and a waist strap, you are ensuring your child the most comfortable fit possible.
Backpacks also come with a lot of different compartments. If you go on a longer hiking trip you may want to have a compartment for a handheld gps, or for your cell phone that is easily accessible. If you carry your tent and sleeping bag along you may want to look at easy storage compartments that are accessible through zippers on top and bottom of your backpack. This comes in handy when you need an item that is stored on the bottom of your backpack so you don't need to empty the whole backpack to get to it, but simply open the bottom zippers. When you are hiking in a more challenging dry, hot environment you may want to look for an outdoor backpack that has a hydration pack included. This is a build in water tank that enables you to drink out of a attached water tube without using your hands or holding a water bottle. Also a good backpack for mountain biking or other sports activities.
Of course, your backpacking adventure will fail if you don't choose the right backpack for you. If you end up with a backpack that is too small, too big, or simply uncomfortable, your trip will not be an enjoyable one. In fact, it could end up raising some safety issue alarms. That is why it is important to pay close attention to capacity, weight, comfort and durability when selecting a backpack.
Depending on the size of your load, you'll need to choose a pack with sufficient support. The main categories of backpacks are back packs with internal frames, backpacks with external frames, and frameless backpacks. Frameless packs are meant for lighter loads. This kind of backpack is simply a bag with straps that fit over the shoulders. More sophisticated frameless backpacks may have padded shoulder straps and backs for extra comfort and additional pockets to help organize your supplies.
